"Sims’ practised eye takes Underwood’s world and runs with it." 

"This is a love story that is begging to be thrown into reverse but is so gripping that the audience, like Ophelia herself, will find it impossible to let go. Wonderfully shot and magnificently performed, ‘Ophelia’ is an exemplary short film and well worth a place on your watch list."​

Nigel Morgan | (CameoLaunch)

"It is a film that is entirely beautiful – beauty comes in many forms and this short seems to encapsulate a range of those different forms; the beauty in love, the beauty in the struggle of love, the beauty in an aching heart."

"Valorie Curry and Sam Underwood immediately strike audiences with powerful emotion oozing from each scene. The onscreen chemistry between the two actors is spectacular."

"Ophelia is overall a fantastically made short film with highly intriguing aspects to be praised throughout its duration. "

"If you are looking for a short film that is bursting with a mixture of fierce and tender emotion then this is definitely the one for you."
